The game was canceled due to rain. SSG Landers and Kiwoom Heroes both changed starting pitchers.
Kiwoom and SSG were scheduled to face off on the 29th at SSG Landers Field in Incheon. However, it rained heavily and the ground was wet, so the decision to postpone the event was made in the end.
In addition to the Incheon game, a decision was made to cancel all 5 KBO League games that day.
As the game was canceled due to rain, both teams changed starting pitchers from domestic to foreign players. SSG changed from Oh Won-seok to Kirk McCarty, and Kiwoom changed from Jang Jae-young to Ian McKinney. A joke came out saying, “Seoul Mac and Incheon Mac will stick together.”
McCarney is 8-4 with a 2.51 ERA in 19 games this season. In his recent appearance against the NC Dinos on the 24th, he recorded 7 hits (3 homers), 1 walk, 6 strikeouts and 4 runs in 7⅓ innings.
He pitched twice against Kiwoom. He pitched 13 innings, posting an earned run average of 1.38.메이저놀이터
